Didier Daglinckx's insight:

One of our graduate students here at UC is investigating the movement of artifacts from the origin to archaeological find spot.

 

She had been gathering her data in a FileMaker Pro database and wanted to be able to visualize the quantity of material either sourced or found in various cities.

 

Since she already had a data table of cities with coordinates gathered from Google Earth, I decided to see if I could get FileMaker to talk directly to Google Earth. 

 

This database is the result.

FileMaker 13 Google Maps API Geocode | The Scarpetta Group, Inc.

FileMaker 13 Google Maps API Geocode | The Scarpetta Group, Inc. | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Most developers are familiar with the built in Google mapping features within FileMaker Pro.

However, with FileMaker Pro 13 bringing HTTP POST methods natively into the game, there’s much more we can do by leveraging the Google maps APIs in FileMaker.

 

So what can we do with FIleMaker 13 Google maps?

In this article, we will look at using address information contained in a FileMaker record, sending a request to the Google maps API version 3 to retrieve the latitude and longitude coordinates for the address and setting those coordinates in the FileMaker record.

Once we have gathered the location data, we can send another request to the Google Maps API to display an interactive single map interface into FileMaker based on the coordinates.

FileMaker Custom Button Icons

FileMaker Custom Button Icons | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

FileMaker 14 ushered in a new era of vector graphics with the advent of button icons. FileMaker comes pre-loaded with 140 very useful glyphs; additionally you can expand your collection with any number of custom glyphs and images.

These icons can then be added to any button or popover button.

 

The default button icons in FileMaker are in SVG format.

An SVG is an XML-based image that renders based on a series of mathematical formulas, and thus can be scaled without pixilation and recolored with ease.

They can even be modified in a text-editor.

This is different from any raster-based image, such as PNGs.

Let’s take a look at how to add custom icons to a solution, and then dive into configuring custom SVGs for FileMaker.

Rapid Application Development: Go Native or Go Platform? | FileMaker

Rapid Application Development: Go Native or Go Platform? | FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

...

 

Well-suited for workgroups, it fills the void between desktop software like Excel and enterprise-grade tools built on Oracle or SAP. Its strength lies in its ease of use: A developer can build in hours what might take days or even weeks to create in a traditional programming language. 

FileMaker solutions deploy to desktop, mobile and web clients with a single shared codebase.

Developers often choose to create device-specific interfaces, but the underlying application, data architecture and business logic all live within one common solution.

It’s certainly not a new concept to code-once, deploy-to-multiple-platforms, but in the case of FileMaker, deployment is a one-step process of publishing an app to an application server.

No need to compile or modify solutions for a specific OS or platform.

Users work with FileMaker solutions via desktop, mobile and web clients much as they might access a website via browser on a desktop or mobile device.

This code-once, deploy-once approach simplifies development effort significantly.

Here's our solution that works cross-platform on all devices.

We weren't after a full-blown integration; we just wanted to click phone numbers and have Skype dial them for us.

If the contact in question also used Skype, we wanted to click that Skype name and initiate a Skype call or chat with them.

It didn’t seem like a tough task and would be a huge time saver once done.
